Where to Eat around The Westin Shenzhen Nanshan
Collected by Westin AFAR
In 1979, Shenzhen was just a tiny fishing village on the border with Hong Kong. Thirty years later, its a booming metropolis of ten million people. An explosive, dynamic city unlike any other, Shenzhen is a place to see the future being built before your eyes.

People say that this is the oldest and most famous dim sum in this part of Shenzhen. Is it true? Maybe. They've expanded into a chain located all over Shenzhen, but this is definitely the original. This is the real deal dim sum. Extremely loud...

Don't be fooled by the name of this complex. Freshly refurbished, rather than an aquarium, this area is an all-in eating/drinking/shopping plaza and entertainment hub by the water. Restaurants here offer international fare, such as Italian,...

Penny Black Jazz Cafe is a well-known jazz bar in OCT. Keep walking past Donkey Bar and the retro bike rental. Cross a street and it is at the end of the block, on the left. I've never been there at night, but I hear that it has great live music...

Not having ever been to an open-air food market before, the first time I went to the Shekou "Wet" Market, the place disgusted and amazed me. They sell fresh seafood and meat, live poultry, fresh vegetables and herbs, and dried spices and nuts....

What's not to love about a restaurant called King's Dumpling? This place has great dumplings (duh) including Shanghai-style soup dumplings, but it's also well-known for its dim sum. If you come here on the weekend, be prepared to wait. This highly...

An older Chinese friend started taking my husband and me to this restaurant when we first moved to Shenzhen. They serve delicious Peking Duck, dumplings, and our favorite, the 木耳 (mu er, a.k.a. wood ear mushrooms). It's almost always crowded for...

My husband and I come to the Grange Grill every couple of months for a "date night." It's one of the hippest, sexiest restaurants in Shenzhen. The furniture is all leather and sleek wood, and the entire restaurant looks out over the city. This...

Xibei is a clean, beautifully decorated restaurant in Shenzhen. They serve lots of lamb, noodles, and steamed breads and make their own tofu and yogurt in-house. This is definitely one of the best-run and tastiest local restaurants I've found in...

We spent a lovely Saturday in my favorite kitchen store in Hong Kong, Pantry Magic. Between shelves of pie pans and colorful hand towels, we learned how to cook some amazing recipes. In this class, Jason Black from the Salted Pig restaurant taught...

Shenzhen isn't exactly known for its French pastries, so I was dubious when I heard that there was a great French bakery in OCT Loft. I soon discovered that Lu Patisserie is the real thing. And it's not just the best bakery in Shenzhen; I've taken...

We call this the "Finding Nemo restaurant" because it has Finding Nemo stickers on the doors. But don't judge a book by its cover: The interior is very tasteful and looks like an appropriate spot for a client lunch. In the entryway, you'll find...
